20 Best Halloween Costumes from Etsy

See that little penguin? That’s my little guy on Halloween last year, dressed up in a handmade costume. I just didn’t do the hand-making.

I always grew up with handmade costumes, and although there are plenty of adorable store-bought options out there, I’m determined to keep that tradition going in my own family. The only problem? I’m can’t sew for the life of me. Luckily my sister hand-sewed my son’s penguin costume last year, and then I ordered the penguin hat from Etsy. It’s all handmade, just not by me! And the hat was so cute (made by AmiAmigos), that he continued to wear it throughout the winter.

If you’re not lucky enough to have a handy family member yet would still love a handmade costume, Etsy is absolutely the best source for Halloween — even just for finishing touches, like hats and booties. Check out the 20 best halloween costumes on Etsy:

    Beautiful costumes, but a little pricey. No offense, but especially for my toddler, I can;t imagine spending that much on a Halloween costume that would only be worn once.

    I am very interested in ordering a size 3 in the Olivia costume. Is it possible for me order it and get it in time for halloween?
